Happy President’s Day weekend! Valentine’s Day has come and gone, and my creative brain is thinking about what comes next. St. Patrick’s Day! A day that doesn’t get as much publicity, but is still an important day. This is a great day to tell special people in our lives how “LUCKY” we are to know them.
That being said, I took this opportunity to make a few pop-up cards for some special people in my life and wanted to share how EASY it is to create them.
Supplies needed: 8.5×11″ green & white card stock, glue stick, scissors, & shamrocks (I purchased these at The Dollar Tree)
To begin, fold an 8.5×11″ piece of white card stock in half. Make 2 cuts on the folded edge approx 2″ apart, each cut being about 1″ in length. Unfold the paper, push the “cut” area inside, so that it creates a “pop-up” cube inside the card.
Fold a green 8.5×11″ piece of card stock in half and glue it to the outside of the white piece of paper, see above.
Glue (or you can use glue dots) the top of the shamrock to the pop-up cube inside the card.
Glue a second shamrock on the front of the card. DONE!!! It’s that simple!!!
Now you can make pop-up cards for all the special people in your life. Be sure to write inside how “LUCKY” you are to have them in your life!
Happy card making!
“Wonder what I will come up with next”…
